E-course on Diathermy
Quomodus, in collaboration with highly qualified personnel, has developed an unique teaching tool in diathermy / electrosurgery. This e-learning tool is quality assured, tested and approved by several Healthcare Professionals from different hospitals.
Available in Norwegian and English. More languages in development.
What They Say
Diathermy is used almost in any surgical procedure, both major and minor surgeries, and must be mastered by all surgeons. Diathermy is a potentially dangerous tool. This e-learning course from Quomodus contains everything from indication, proper use, side effects and complications associated with the use of diathermy. The course ends with a theoretical test and can be repeated as often as you wish. The course is currently used at Oslo University Hospitals and University Hospitals Northern Norway.
Conclusion: Everyone who uses diathermy should receive systematic training in proper use. As of today, there is no such offer in Norway. Surgeons in training (and others using diathermy) will benefit greatly from this course. The course is elaborate, systematic and not vendor controlled. The course increases patient safety. It is therefore strongly recommended that this course is used as part of the education / training of doctors using diathermy.
